Aristocrat Water Clear Polyester Casting Resin
Aristocrat crystal clear polyester casting resin is a liquid plastic, when catalyst is added to the resin a chemical reaction causes the resin to cure and harden into a rock hard, crystal clear piece. It is an easy to use, water clear polyester resin, perfect for making decorative plastic craft items. You can use an assortment of molds we offer to embed and encapsulate coins, dried flowers, insects, seashells, stones, and many other objects forever in plastic.
Available in pints, quarts, gallons and for extra saving a case of 4 gallons.
All resins come complete with hardener (catalyst).
We have a complete line of molds, dyes, and pigments, all available for online ordering.
Are you thinking of covering a table top or embedding objects in a table top? Our casting resin may not be your best choice. We suggest using our Polymer Epoxy Coating for covering table tops.

Surface Curing Agent
Polyester resins will not fully cure when they are exposed to the air.
When you are casting resin in a mold, all of the resin that is against the mold will cure, but the surface of the resin that is exposed to the air will not fully cure. It will stay sticky and somewhat soft.
(Think of it like baking a cake, if you flip a cake pan over and turn the cake upside down, the top of the cake, the part that was against the pan is fully cured, but the bottom of the cake, which was the top and exposed to the air, will not fully cure.)
Our surface curing agent resolves this problem. It allows a thin layer of wax to form on the top of the resin and allows the resin to fully
cure to a hard tack free surface. This product slightly clouds the resin so don't use it when you are doing a crystal clear casting.
2 oz. is enough to cure 1 gallon of resin.
